Pain In My Side....

I've got a question....

I have this horrible pain in my side that comes and goes. I'm not sick and I haven't had gluten. I am just curious if others get this same kind of thing. It's almost like my intestine has a kink in it or something. I guess I just wanted to see if others have any trouble with this, don't want to feel alone....

It's on my right side, under my ribs and hurts all the way into my back. I had my gall bladder removed almost 2 years ago. But it hurts in the same area.

Thanks,

Lollie

I had my gallbladder removed almost 2 years ago as well and I still sometimes, not very frequently, get the same feeling of pain in the same area where I had it before my gallbladder...Have you ever been checked for gallstones stuck in the bile duct? They told me this could happen when I got really sick right after my surgery.

I am not feeling sick....Just pain. I had an MRI before surgery and there were no gallstones. Just gravel. How long does it take to properly heal? Does celiac hinder that healing?

sounds like gallbladder area to me. i was having those pains when i first went gluten free. i started a probiotic and it seemd to get bettee (not sure if thats why). have you tried a rolaid or something like that becaue if that helps then maybe its just indigestion??

hope you feel better!

Well, I think what doesn't make sense is that I had my gall bladder out 2 years ago! It's not indegstion, I had lived with that for years. I've been gluten free for 9 months. It seems like it might be my intestines, knowing that they also are wrapped up in that area. I don't know. I had to sleep with the heating pad. My bowels have been a little backed up lately....I don't know, just throwing out ideas that I think it might be. I am very frustrated. I want to just be well. I am tired of trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Sorry didn't mean to start venting....

Well, this is probably not the cause in your case I guess, but for awhile I was having all sorts of pains. Recently I found out it was due to nightshades. It has taken weeks for things to get only partly cleared up too. I wish I had a definitive answer for you, but the relationship to the gallbladder seems pretty strong. Though I don't know what that could mean since yours was removed.

Hi Judy, I got your e-mail. I just haven't felt very well. I am sure there wasn't any stones, they did a scan to make sure prior to the surgery, plus it's been so long, I am thinking that it would have given me trouble before now. I was able to finally go to the bathroom, today. I am thinking it has something to do with the liver... Which of course the gall bladder is related to. I don't know. I am just hoping to start feeling well again.

Thanks for the concern!

I have this, too. I just had my gallbladder removed in May and I still have the same pain. I know there isn't a gallstone still there because they looked at the time of surgery. My GI doctor has ordered a gastric emptying study and did some blood tests but I haven't heard the results yet. I don't really think it is a gastric emptying problem from what I've read about that but I don't know what it could be.

I know this is no help. I just wanted you to know you're not the only one.

I think what you are feeling is good old gas. For some reason my doctor said we have more than our share of air in our intestines. When I get this I usually take some Citracel tabs and it goes away. I've had my gallbladder studied every which way and it is functioning normally. Try thr fiber pills, they are gluten-free and I think it will bring you relief, it does for me, helps the constipation too.

    • Ah yes... dry beans. I am fortunate to live near a plant that only processes beans, pulses and rice (Western Rice Mills if you're on the west coast). I doubt that they test, but I would suspect that the biggest part of the risk with that type of food is in the plant where they pack them, as things like barley pearls and wheat berries are often sold as dried goods and would probably be done on the same lines. I would agree that dry beans could be problematic depending on source. 
    • No, Armour has always been gluten free.  The formulation changed a few years back and during the switch, there was a shortage.  That has long since resolved.  Forest Pharmaceuticals (manufacturer of Armour) was bought out by Activas in 2015.  They increased the price!  Now it is comparable to synthetic.   Imtried to find a good and reputable source about the history of thyroid replacement.  Here is one link -- the story is pretty accurate, but the site is trying to sell you stuff.   https://thyroidpharmacist.com/articles/the-history-of-natural-desiccated-thyroid-medications/  
    • If she is now at a public school, accommodations can be made for disabilities.  Here is a link that explains a 504 plan and an IEP, but you will have to investigate based on your state.   https://www.foodallergy.org/education-awareness/advocacy-resources/section-504-and-written-management-plans https://www.understood.org/en/school-learning/special-services/504-plan/the-difference-between-ieps-and-504-plans http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/504-plans.html https://www2.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ocr/504faq.html i am not very knowledgeable about this subject, so I encourage you to contact your school district for help.  Your doctor might be a good resource too.   You might consider homeschooling until she has been diagnosed and has received treatment.  The Department of Education can direct you to homeschooling resources.  There are lots of wonderful programs out there and you can get financial support.   I wish you all well!  
    • You make a good point about being neurotic. I'm slowly getting better. I guess time will tell. But thank you for the insight.   As far as roommates go, that's a good idea. I've definitely been thinking about that. But these guys are my best friends and the process of getting a new roommate this late in my schooling might be hard. Although, I will keep my eye out for the opportunity. 
    • Hello I understand what you are going thru. My son almost died from going 27 years without figuring out it was gluten and then corn causing all the illness. I brought him to Drs, none of them figured out gluten intolerance. Oh they told us he had everything else. Then as time went on, he found out he has issues with corn. Corn has identical genetic make-up as gluten.  Corn is sneaky and everywhere. Contact the manufactures, ask them if there is a chance of contamination or corn ingredient in their products. My son gets neurological problems when gluten/cornized. Anxiety, obsessive thoughts, can not think. He had to be taken out of school and homeschooled. He just found out the digestive enzymes he was taking contain an enzyme that is grown on barley. Enzymedic basic.  My suggestions for you are, seriously go find another place to live. You need your mind and health to continue school. If you don't and continue living where you are, school will suffer. In your spare time, find out all you can about gluten and what other foods act like gluten in the body. Like I said, corn has the same genetic make up as gluten, some people can not eat rice either. This is something that is doable, it is just becoming very aware of what goes in the mouth. Please find another place to live. You don't need to deal with those jerks, you have enough going on with school and health. There might be other people in your school that are celiac or gluten sensitive. Find them, post notes up, start a newsletter about gluten free lifestyle. I bet there are many people that would welcome that newsletter.  You don't need to do this alone!   You are the most important person in your life, you deserve to feel good and be respected! Stay away from those that don't respect you. Search out those that will.  Eating out is something that can be done, find those places that will work with you. Ask to have burgers or meat cooked on aluminum foil. Fresh veggies, fruits all gluten free. Again, research restaurants in your area willing to work with you. Even call the manager and talk to them. All the best to you!  Hang in there.
